Acommpannied by Heart Sutra uttered by Buddha at Vulture's Peak on the second turning of the Wheel of Dharma. ​

Under the Bodhi tree thousands of monks meditate every day. Their presence evokes that of the Sakyamuni Buddha, who in this same place attained enlightenment 2500 years ago.


The Sacred Tree is one of a series of works conceived in sites venerated since ancestral times. Nomadic pieces, made from a photographs which are deployed to take he energy from the place where they were taken to daily situations. Works which seek to translate a luminescence, inhabit a space and give shelter to those who need it.
